Ph.D. Candidate in Cloud Computing

Computer Systems Lab (CSL), Cornell University

I am a 5th year Ph.D. candidate in Electrical and Computer Engineering at Cornell University, advised by Professor Christina Delimitrou. I am interested in cloud computing, microservices, ML for systems and computer architecture. My research focuses on building and managing large-scale microservices in datacenters, improving their performance and resource efficiency. Before studying at Cornell, I obtained my B.Eng. degree in Electronic Engineering from Tsinghua University in 2016.

I was a Ph.D. software engineering intern and student researcher at Google in 2018, 2019, 2020, and 2021, hosted by David Lo, Sundar Dev and Qian Xi. During my internship, I did research on using machine learning to improve resource efficiency and detect performance issues of large scale distributed services in Google Cloud.

🌟 I am actively looking for full-time job opportunities in industry in both China and North America.
